Basketball Additional

Joe Valerio was well on the way to setting records in Proctor varsity basketball and baseball, but in the second game of the 2018-2019 varsity basketball season a floating bone chip in his left knee became impinged under the patella tendon. Joe missed 5 basketball games, but came back and started the remainder of the basketball schedule playing at about 65% of capacity, while leading his team to the state semifinal game.

Immediately after the basketball season Joe had minor surgery to remove the bone chip from his knee. As a result Joe only played the last 6 games of the varsity baseball season, but came back to lead his team to the state semifinal game. Amazingly, Joe still was awarded All-MVL honors in basketball and baseball, and was chosen to the Vermont Dream Dozen (12 best underclassmen basketball players in the state) for the second year in a row.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I cannot imagine my life without competitive sports. I have been playing competitive sports whether it is club soccer, AAU Basketball or some sort of summer baseball (Little League, Babe Ruth or Legion) for my entire life. I have always "played up", and I am finally at the point where I am playing with my own age-group. I watched all of my sisters play basketball and soccer at the college level, and I know I can do the same. Frankly, I don't know what I would do without playing competitive sports.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I have been a captain of the varsity baseball team every year since by Freshman year - I had been starter at shortstop and a pitcher since 8th Grade on varsity baseball. I have been a captain of both basketball and soccer since 10th Grade. I am also President of my class, and a member of the National Honor Society. I have been in charge of fundraising and organization of school and athletic events, following in the footsteps of my sisters. I'm proud that our school has been recognized as the 8th Best School in Vermont by US News & World Report.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

It has been important to me to be able to balance the highest academic performance with excellence in on the field. In my school all are encouraged to play three sports so the teams can be competitive, but in time most of us will not be remembered for sports. Ultimately, what we achieve academically will most likely translate into something that can benefit our families and society. Success in athletics without academics success in just a glass half full. Balance is the key.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I volunteer at the local preschool and daycare center. I am a peer leader at school. And I am very involved in the Hugh OBrien Youth Leadership (HOBY) organization having served as an ambassador and a junior facilitator. I have been class President my entire high school career. We have all benefitted from the generosity or commitment of others. This is just my way of giving back something to the community where I grew up.
